The installation of solar photovoltaic on a roof of a structure can be simple to complex. There are several items needed when submitting for a solar photovoltaic roof permit to determine that the finished project complies with the minimum requirements of the 2012 International Residential Code (2012 IRC) and 2014 National Electrical Code (2014 NEC).
In order for a project to be considered for the Express Permit Process, which is an over the counter permit issuance process that relies on accurate information within the construction documents and the applications in order to ensure that the permit can be issued within the prescribed timeframe.
Photovoltaic applications for this process are only applicable to roof mounted residential & small commercial (under 25kW) systems.
